Default Obtaining a G Class Driving License

I understand from friends that one can directly apply for a G class
Driving License in Ontario, if you have a driving license from another
country, eg. from the middle East. I have been driving for 18 years
now, and have driven several times in Canada on visits, (Calgary,
Montreal, Banff and Toronto). Can I directly apply for a G Class
License and what is procedure?, what documents do I need? and How much
does it costs. I am planning for my landing in May next year. How
soon will I get a date for the tests etc.

Can someone point me in the right direction

Many Thanks
Ed

You cannot go straight to a class G license unless you are from the
United
States, Japan, Republic of Korea, Austria, Germany, Switzerland or
Canadian Forces - Europe

Drivers from any other country

2 or More Years of Driving Experience Within the Last Three Years

You must pass vision and knowledge tests to be issued a Class G1
licence. If you have acceptable proof of two or more years of
driving experience, you have two options.

1.You may book a G2 road test. If you pass, you will
earn full driving privileges. If you do not pass this
test, you
will get a Class G1 licence and may then immediately book
a
G1 road test.

2.If you decide you need more practice, you may book a G1
road test to earn G2 driving privileges. If you pass this
test, you will get a Class G2 licence and may book a G2
road
test (when you feel you are ready and before your licence
expires). If you do not pass, you will keep the Class G1
licence, and may re-book another G1 road test.

I just walked into the test center and did the written test immediately
(well, took my place in the queue of course - 2 hour wait). It cost around
$70. Then there is the road test which usually needs to be booked about 2-3
months in advance as they can get busy. That costs around $30 or so (I don't
quite remember). When you have completed both tests you have a full license.
The written test only gives you learner status and you must be accompanied
by a full license holder at all times.

Hope this helps.
